Energy Saving Lux LoÉ Glass
There are many LoÉ glass types available to suit virtually any climate; Lux Windows uses a superior product most beneficial when considering energy efficiency for Canadian weather. LoÉ is a unique, microscopically thin coating (not affecting clarity) containing transparent layers of metal and metal oxides. This metal coating works in tandem with an argon gas enhanced airspace, greatly reducing the sun's hot rays from entering the home in the summer, and also traps interior climate conditions reducing energy costs of both heating and air conditioning.
Each and every Lux window and door is available with LoÉ glass. LoÉ also significantly resists damaging ultraviolet rays, protecting your curtains, furniture and flooring from fading.
* Most heat is sent back to its original source.
The LoÉ Difference
LoÉ is a thin, invisible coating designed to reflect heat. It not only improves the energy efficiency of your home, it can reduce your monthly utility bills and the size of your carbon footprint.
